The innovative wheel securing system from DT Swiss! Instead of the developed for racing bikes over 80 year old eccentric principle, the RWS, the clamping force is built up by tightening a bolt with a lever.
The operation is very simple: the tensioner by rotating the lever clockwise as tight as possible by hand tighten (min 15 Nm.). Depending on the frame or fork construction this can be made by repeatedly moving the lever. Then put the lever and rotate to the desired position - the wheel is fixed securely and strong.
Because the RWS are no plastic parts in the force flow, the clamping force is independent of temperature and thus the RWS is 100% disc brake compatible!
The direct transmission of leverage on the thread can be achieved with the RWS is up to 50% more clamping force than with conventional quick release. This is not only safer, but also increases the stiffness, which is particularly noticeable with disc brakes.
The DT Swiss thru bolt RWS optimizes the system even more. Instead of the regular 5 mm thick quick release axle, a 9 mm thru bolt axle front used. Together with the DT Swiss thru bolt hub is an even better connection ensures the fork as the standard RWS or other quick release. The RWS thru bolt system combines the advantages of a fixed thru bolt axle with the easy handling of a quick release. The RWS thru bolt system is 100% compatible with any standard frame or fork, which normally operate with a quick release.
